Welcome to OWW Online

Welcome to OWW Online, the website for former pupils of Westminster School, which aims to provide everything OWW could need in order to remain involved with the School after they leave. Most OWW join the Elizabethan Club (the School’s alumni association) when they start at Westminster and should be receiving invitations to events and news from the School as well as the annual OW magazine and termly OW e-newsletter. If you are an OW and are not receiving these communications please do email us on alumni@westminster.org.uk or register for this site here to update your details. As well as a full calendar of OW events (see the list on the right hand side of the screen) as an OW you can also be involved as a mentor or seek careers advice as part of the Careers and Mentoring Programme. You can also join an OW sports team and enjoy the benefits of access to the School’s new Sports Centre and facilities at Vincent Square. While you are on the website do have a look at our ‘Brief History of Westminster School’ and if that whets your appetite for more information on the history of the School, do have a look at the You Tube channel which features old films shot by pupils as well as the current School video prospectus. If you have any feedback on this site or OW activity in general please do not hesitate to contact the Development Office – we’d love to hear from you.


The Friends of Westminster School Abbey Tour
The Friends of Westminster School spent a special evening on Thursday 23 April touring Westminster Abbey. After catching up with a glass of something in the Camden Room, actually just outside the Camden Room on a glorious Spring evening, the group was led through the, usually spooky but today rather sunny, dark cloister to the West Cloister Door of the Abbey. Once inside the Abbey Friends were welcomed by Canon White next to the grave of the unknown warrior before separating into three groups to be guided around the Abbey. Our excellent guides took us to some of the wonderful sights and treasures of the Abbey; you would need all night and probably longer to discover them all, and kept us enthralled with facts, legends and anecdotes. Each moment was a highlight and our visit included the shrine of Edward the Confessor, the Cosmati pavement, upon which monarchs are crowned and the tomb of Elizabeth I, much loved monarch and the Schools founder. Our thanks go to our guides, Tom Edlin, Vanessa Silcock and Elizabeth Wells for giving their time to take us around the Abbey and share their knowledge to inform and entertain us. We would also like to thank Dee Dee Simpson and the Friends of Westminster School Steering Committee for organising a wonderful evening.
